DSCS9 Android 6.0.1 to Android 7.1.2 Device Upgrade and Reinstalling firmware

All DSCS9 Android Devices purchased from Xibo Signage can be upgraded.

DSCS9 Android upgrade - 7.1.2 Upgrade/Reinstall Firmware Instructions
Upgrade via microSD card Click here
Upgrade via USB cable Click here

A small number of DSCS9s sold several years ago are not compatible with Android 7. To check your device, look at the device with the STATUS and NET LED lights towards you, and the antenna for the wifi on the far side away from you and to the right.

If the two USB-A ports are to the right as you look at it, the device can be upgraded to Android 7. If they’re on the left then unfortunately the device cannot be upgraded to Android 7. Do not try to upgrade a device with USB ports on the left.
